I Got The Music In Me!

"When you make a mistake, admit it. If you don't, you only make matters worst." - Ward Cleaver
Welcome to my Saturday 😎
It was nice to have a early cup of tea and listen to "Sounds of the 60s" in bed.
Time for another brew 
Breakfast in bed.
Hubby got up to drop off son at work.
I meanwhile had to hang the cloths outside in the sunshine to dry...
Washing machine goes back on to wash the kids's uniforms.
Hubby comes back with a much needed bacon sandwich!
I need 2 more peg hangers as one isn't enough!
I ordered two more from Dunelm.
Not long later, I went and collected my order.
Quick look around before I pick up my order.
Too big to get into our Living room :(
I went past my late dad's house, and a 58 black van was just coming out from the drive, it followed us down the road until we turned off.
Perhaps it was the new owner looking over the house he has just bought. 
Gets back home to unpack my order.
Sausage rolls for lunch.
Hubby and younger son is going off to visit hubby's dad as it's his birthday today \o/
I meanwhile had lots to do at home....
Washing machine to be loaded up again.
I ran out of room on the washing lines outside.
3 loads had to go in the tumble drier.
Hubby went to say hello to his mum first.
The blossom was nice in the graveyard.
His dad liked his present.
It went straight up on his wall.
I meanwhile had my playlist blasting out.
Plenty of singing to do while updating the blog.
Inbetween singing and blogging.
Tea at 3 
I made the cottage pies for later....
I had a break of doing all the that by picking up son from his job.
Once back.
  The cottage pies were put in the oven.
Back to blogging and singing.
Hubby and younger son comes back.
Time to dish up the cottage pies..
I finally got the blog up to date.
Last Saturday's, Thursday's and yesterday's blog post wrote and published!
Catch up time with telly programmes.
First up was:
Judge Rinder.
Dragon's Den.
Quick look in today's newspaper.
Pete Ham  was a Welsh singer, songwriter and guitarist, best known as a lead vocalist of and composer for the 1970s rock band Badfinger, whose hit songs include "No Matter What", "Day After Day" and "Baby Blue". He also co-wrote the ballad "Without You", a worldwide number-one hit for Harry Nilsson that has become a standard covered by hundreds of artists. Ham was granted two Ivor Novello Awards related to the song in 1973.
Ham committed suicide in 1975 at the age of 27, when he became depressed while embroiled in band-related issues, such as label and management problems, as well as a lack of funds. The emotional scar his death left on Badfinger eventually led to the suicide of former bandmate Tom Evans in 1983. 
He died on this day in 1975.
Harold Reid was a member of The Statler Brothers (American country music, gospel vocal group.They sang as opening act and backup singers for Johnny Cash). He died on this day in 2020  after a long battle with kidney failure, at age 80.
Sleep tea time.
Off to that warm bed.....

Keeping It Filled Up!

If you play with anything long enough it will break - Murphy's Law
Welcome to my Saturday 👅
Nice to have hug with a brew!
Kids are off for their daily exercise.
They will meet us at the graveyard where my parents are buried.
I had some nice stuff arrive in the post↓
Now to go out for some fresh air.
Kids started on their walk.
We went past where the new Lidl is being built.
They are slowly bringing down the old buildings..
Tidied up my parent's grave.
Next Sunday is Mother's Day, and got the balloons ready as well as more flowers.
We had a look around the graveyard.
We found someone who died at 101 years old.
Kids arrived. 
Back home.
We had a nice treat of a Bacon and black pudding sandwich↓
Then off to get some meat for the freezer.
(I stopped in the car)
When we got back, time for all of it to go in the freezer.
Time for a much needed coffee.
Hubby and son then went off to do some food shopping for us and the next door neighbour.
I had a Cottage Pie to make.
Once it was done, in the oven it went.
Having fun at the moment trying to master bread.
We ate the last of it yesterday.
First thing tomorrow, the breadmaker is going back on.
I wrote yesterday's blog post.
Hubby and son came back.
Unpacked the shopping.
